The XtremeScale™ series of Ethernet network adapters are designed for high-performance electronic trading environments and enterprise data centers; including artificial intelligence, big data, analytics, hyperscale, machine learning, storage, and telco applications.
With record-breaking low latency and high throughput, XtremeScale network adapters provide real-time packet and flow information to thousands of virtual NICs. This combination of ultra-high bandwidth, ultra-low latency, ultra-scale connectivity, and packet telemetry allows X2 series adapters to scale with each server, virtual machine or container.
For cloud data centers, Onload® application acceleration software dramatically accelerates and scales network-intensive workloads such as in-memory databases, software load balancers, and web servers. With Onload, data centers can support 4X or more users on their cloud network while delivering improved reliability, enhanced quality of service (QoS), and a higher return on investment, without modification to existing applications.
In electronic trading environments, Onload kernel bypass application acceleration and DPDK services deliver superior small packet performance with sub-microsecond hardware latency.
In addition, XtremeScale adapters support the precision time protocol (PTP) fabric service for apps that require synchronized time stamping of packets down to single-digit nanosecond resolution.

Onload® dramatically accelerates and scales network-intensive applications such as in-memory databases, software load balancers, and web servers. With Onload, data centers can support 400% or more users on their cloud network while delivering improved reliability, enhanced quality of service (QoS) and higher return on investment, without modification to existing applications.
Onload allows data centers to realize:
Onload delivers a return on capex investments by allowing data centers to redeploy 25% or more of their load-balancing servers for other tasks. Alternatively, data centers can attain a reduction in operational expenses (opex) by shrinking the overall server footprint.
Onload accelerates nearly all network-intensive TCP-based applications. Typical performance improvements when utilizing Onload include:
|Use Case||Applicaation(s)||Performance Increase||Benchmark Documents|
|In-Memory Databases||Couchbase, Memcached, Redis||100%|
|Software Load Balancers||NGINX Plus, HAProxy||400%|
|Web Servers/ Applications||NGINX Plus, Netty.io||50%|
Xilinx has produced a series of cookbooks that outline the servers we used, the configuration done, and exactly what testing was completed. The purpose of these cookbooks is to enable customers to reproduce the results obtained, as sometimes they can appear somewhat remarkable.

Onload is built from the same I/O software technology that powers nearly every financial market and high-frequency trading application on the planet. POSIX compliant, Onload ensures compatibility with TCP-based applications, management tools, and network infrastructures. In addition, Onload provides RDMA-like performance without requiring a forklift upgrade to the data center’s network infrastructure and can be deployed across x86-based platforms running Linux – bare metal, virtual machine or container.
